A Palestinian cop and an Israeli cop investigate the murder of an American archaeologist teaching in the West Bank.
Facts is a murder mystery set in Hebron. It is a work of fiction, but its starting point is an actual event: the murder in 1992 of Dr. Albert Glock, an American archaeologist teaching at Birzeit University in Ramallah.
